As promised in the last PaperPhine newsletter we’re busily putting the finishing touches onto the Paper Twine Tote Bag tutorial. A great knitting project and an even greater tote bag (prepare to defend it because people will definitely try to convince you to hand it over to them as a present). Just give us a couple more days and all details will be worked out!
You don’t get our newsletter yet? Have a look at the right hand side and you’ll find a sign-up link. And don’t worry – we’re far too busy to send more than one newsletter every couple of months but we do our best to fill it with the best and most worthwhile information every time!
This necklace is Ruth’s take on an elegant summer necklace made out of natural materials. Ruth is the designer and maker behind RefinedByRuth and she’s a real creative force working not only with textile materials but also with found objects of all kinds and especially with driftwood that she sources in Austria’s mountain torrents.
This necklace was knitted by hand with needles out of PaperPhine’s Finest Paper Yarn and filled with cherry pits. Thereby one of the strongest qualities of paper yarn has been beautifully incorporated into the design: paper yarn’s inherent stiffness that makes it possible to knit and construct loose structures that show what lies beneath.
Currently Ruth is showing and selling her creations in Gmünd in Carinthia (Austria). She is also busily stocking up her etsy shop RefinedByRuth and working on a second paper yarn necklace in natural hues. It will be our pleasure to present it to you once it will be finished.
